Oboist Leclair wakes up music world in Alarm Will Sound

Talking with oboist Jackie Leclair is like the proverbial breath of fresh air. The energy and enthusiasm she expresses about her work auger good things for contemporary classical music. 

Leclair is in the enviable position of playing challenging and cutting-edge music, on the instrument she loves, with a group of like-minded musicians who are not only at the peak of their creativity but are also receiving great critical and audience recognition.

She is just back from New York City, where her chamber ensemble Alarm Will Sound was one of three groups chosen to perform at the gala reopening of Alice Tully Hall on March 3. The famed concert hall in Lincoln Center had been closed three years for renovations. Alarm Will Sound was the youngest of the three groups to play; the others were composer Steve Reich’s ensemble and the Bang on a Can All-Stars.
